Seems like its meant for devs.
No, all users will get the added hard drive space. Most users will see a faster OS. Not that searching would have come up with those answers.
Cool new exposé features and a new desktop background.
There have also been some changes to stacks.
Plus, everything will "feel snappier!"
Added Hard Drive Space?
yea, it takes up less space than leopard, so you'll have a few more gb's
From what I hear it also shows harddrive space with a slightly different number system so it will appear that there is more space but it is just measured differently.
(Example) currently a 500Gb HDD shows up as around 465Gb because the drive manufacture measures 1 Gb as 1000Mb while 10.5 measures it as 1024Mb. In 10.6 it will be measured as 1Gb = 1000Mb
(This may not be entirely accurate but it is the general concept from what I have heard from the betas so it may have changed)
Which sucks! to me, a GB (not Gb, that's a gigabit) will always be 1024 MB, however the hard disc manufacturers refer to 1 GB as 1000 MB, and the old-school GB has become GiB, or Gibibyte
Also, PPC code has been removed too, all except from the kernel, right?
Most of what SL is all about, is a vehicle to get Grand Central into your Mac. Sure, there's a little eye candy, a few improved features, Exchange support (which I realllllly want because Entourage sucks Vulcan gonads), etc etc... but GC is the gem. You may not notice anything in 10.6.0... but stay tuned for 10.6.1, and especially the newer apps compiled and optimized to take advantage of GC.
It's going to be Fun!!!
It'll start reading hard drives in 1000MB vs 1024MB, and it saves up a few gigs of space due to the OS size being smaller vs leopard
But Outlook for the Mac is only 14 or 15 short months away! That'll solve all our problems.
